Do It Again Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Do It Again

In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in but they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin' as they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn't hangin' so they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

When you know she's no high climber then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer, but you're sure you're near the end
Then you love a little wild one, and she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin', you'll be on your knees tomorrow


Guitar Solo
Keyboard Solo

Now you swear and kick and beg us that yopu're not a gamblin' man;
Then you find you're back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
Your black cards can bring you money so you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

In the long tradition of sad western "story" songs, this one talks about people who can't seem to leave the very thing alone that will eventually do them in. You're probably already doing the thing that's gonna take you out, too. Think about it.

Great song!

Correct you if your wrong...

Second verse - first line - I think that it's..."When you know she's no high-climber, then you find your OLD-BEST friend"...
Third verse - second line I hear it this way ..."Then you find your BLUSH in Vegas..."

Maybe I should've read the liner-notes? Steely Dan has always had my respect for lyrics, 'cause they're always "slick".

Right on, these lyrics are short but right on the money. Truly represents addiction in my opinion.
